In general, SFNY have been installing FTTC, and leaving FTTP until "later".
We are pretty much at the end-date of phase 1 for SFNY, and areas they have labelled for FTTP don't seem to have yet materialised - a pattern which appears to be common wherever FTTP has been scheduled in the UK (apart from Cornwall), whether in a commercial area or a BDUK-funded one.
FTTC cabinets for phase 1 appear to be still being activated; they are definitely not quite finished with phase 1 on that front either.
Although phase 1 should be wrapping up, the council gave the go-ahead for phase 2 to occur a few months ago. According to the council minutes, phase 2 is expected to go on for another year (ie autumn 2015), and will affect 10-15,000 properties; as a previous post says, there has been precious little said about what areas will be included in phase 2 - perhaps because it starts to rely on FTTRN technology that is supposedly being trialled in/near Leyburn.
The funding for phase 2 (an extra £8m) has come from the first BDUK pot, so shouldn't be confused with the second BDUK project, known as the Superfast Extension Project, SEP.
The council has recently run an OMR (open market review) prior to starting the phase 3 project (which will be the SEP project).
The status of both phases 2 and 3 have been due to be reported at the last 2 council executive meetings, but has been postponed both times.
As Mr Saffron says - get somewhere where the work has already been done.
I have 3 tools that help:
1. Lookup localities, exchanges, and find all the cabinets & EO bundles from here:
It has a fairly recent idea of which cabinets have been upgraded, but it isn't quite up to date.
2. Lookup postcodes for streets at Royal Mail
3. Lookup fibre provision using BT-Wholesale's "address checker":
NB: use the address checker, but only put a postcode in. After submitting, it will give you a list of properties, and you can check each property individually.
